During these exceedingly difficult times, our focus at Cornish Holiday has been to keep everyone, guests and the local Cornish community safe and well, while giving the opportunity to unwind and relax in these very strange and challenging times.
So what have we done?
Having carried out a Risk Assessment and highlighted the areas of possible transmission of the virus, we have created and put in place a procedure and processes to minimise the risk of spreading or catching Covid-19
Actions taken include fitting automatic hand sanitisers both inside and outside the properties.
Each guest will receive a 50ml bottle of at least 60% alcohol Hand Sanitiser and anti-bacterial wipes will be in the property.
All linen, mattress and pillow protectors will be washed at a minimum of 60 degrees after being placed in dissolvable bags, which is how the NHS process their laundry.
Our Cleaners along with other members of the team have taken on-line courses for cleaning our properties, so you can rest assured that everything possible has been done to ensure your safety and that the properties are clean and safe.
Prior to arrival we will send an email to politely ask you to confirm that you are well and healthy and are not displaying signs or symptoms of Coronavirus.
Upon arrival we will be asking you, our guests to please sanitise your hands before using the key safe, using the dispensers provided. Please continue to use these throughout your stay.
We are requesting that if guests do develop symptoms or become ill and are well enough to travel please travel home to self-isolate and let us know as soon as possible by email or phone.
This is very important as we will have a deep clean carried out prior to anyone else staying within the property.
We would also ask:
- Please keep a safe social distance to all other property owners, neighbours and locals while in the area. Current guidelines suggest 1 meter plus, but 2 metres is preferred.Please respect the local community, some of them will naturally be nervous about you visiting their county and we would ask that you are understanding about this.
- Please respect other organisations rules and guidance when visiting.
- Please do not share the Hot Tub with any other households if there is one at the property.
- Please wash your hands regularly with soap for 20 seconds while in the property.
- Please keep up to date with Government guidelines during your stay and follow this as requested. You may find these change during your stay.
- When you leave, we would ask you please to strip the beds, put the linen in the bags provided and leave in the rooms ready for collection (Please do not shake the linen). Mattress and Pillow protectors should be included. Please do not knot the top or get the bags wet as they are dissolvable.
- Also, just before you leave we would please ask if you could load the dishwasher and set it running on its hottest wash. The cleaners will unload this later.
- When you return home, we will email asking for feedback on your stay and enquiring if you are still well.
Cornwall is open, but things will be a little different
Visit Cornwall have created a nice video welcoming visitors’ back but explaining that things will be a little different. This can be found on our Youtube Channel it’s called ‘From the 4th July – Video by Visit Cornwall’.
